What "M" Neoi and Hear* on His
RonaUi In Country an?l in Town.
Abbeville, S. C.. May 27,1908.
ROCK V GROVE Pft'NIC.
On last Saturday the pretty country home
of Major Arthur Parker wan the scene of
mirth and happiness. As we drove up It
seemed as if we were approaching "(airy
land,"?so many sally attired childreD running
here and there in Joyful elee. There
were to be seen groups of pretty young ladles
roamlne among the flowers and through the
spacious balls and piazzas of the cottage, all
carefully looked after by stately matrons,
who by tbe merry twinkle In their eyes
showed tbey too eDjoyed the bappy life plolure.
Tbe young men were gallant, gay and
bappy as larks, and never looked more handsome.
Music and dancing made up tbe pleasures
of tbe day.
About one o'clock p. m. dinner was announced,
and as tbe crowd assembled In tbe
grove, a long table filled wltb "alack" pies
aud custards, chocolate, pound and plain
cakes, ham, fried chicken, pickle and everything
good was to be seen ; tbe appetites of all
were sharpened by tbe slgbt and every one
did justice both to tbe dinner and blmself.
Everything was nicely served, tbe young men
waiting on the ladles. After tbe repast all repaired
to tbe cottage and enjoyed themselves
as best suited their mood.
Major Parker was Indeed a best fully equal
to tbe occasion, giving up his entire bouse
(excepting his own room) to tbe plonlcers.
Tbe Major was at his best, and as he sported
wltb the girls, looked bappy.
Tbe day will long be remembered by those
present and tbe courtesies and kindness ol
their generous host will not soon be forgotten.

A fine dinner was spread, lost such as the
people of that community know bow to prepare.
This was one day tbe writer heartily
wished he could be present at two plaees

These good people bad a picnic too, at Mo
Mlllan's spring below tbe old fair ground.

Its Problems and Its Opportunities
- for Retailers*
The retailer finds May a month in
which be has plenty of opportunities
to exercise his advertising abilities.
Spring is well under way, the threshold
of summer is but a step and
goods that are timely must be well
brought before the public.
May shopping is a serious matter to
every woman. She wants articles of
dress such as ready-to-wear garments,
Bilks, dress goods,' velvets, wash fab- 1
rics, rucbings, laces, gloves, etc.
"Sales" Bhould be constantly adver- .
tised in these goods. The more clever- 1
ly and comprehensively thev are written
about, the more closely followed
vill be the advertising and the more
productive will it be of results. 1
Every man and boy does some May
q h nnni n nr
Ttie summer suit is a question that
the wide-awake clothier has anticipated
by preparing a line of suiting that
sheds much light upon fine lines of
summer suits. The new summer
styles of shirts, neckwear, fancy
vests, shoes, hats and all manner of
furnishings should receive some publicity
in the May advertising.
The housekeeper should be spoken
to by the May advertiser. In furnishing
and refurnishing her summer
home she appreciates the advertisement
that directs attention to rattling
good values in house furnishings
cnina, glassware, crockery, bric-a-brac,
lamps, etc. tibe needs these goods and
advertising will help to sell them to
May is the month that really introduced
the summer goods. May is
full of sunshine and warm days and
though summer may not have set in
according to the idea of those who follow
solstice situations, vet the be
guiling balmy weather influences be- 1
get a stiff sale of summer merchandise, i
"Openings" of summer goods are in '
order in the merry month of May. I
There are any number of summer 1
styles in millinery which every pro- gressive
milliner is anxious to tell the (
story of. There are scores of styles in 1
shirt waists that May openings will do i
justice to. The new summer shapes 1
in low cut shoes is a subject that is 1
agitating the shoe dealer's mind and
good advertising on this will remove <
bis anxiety as to future sales. t
As you look up and down the line i
of retaildom you can see that May ad- I
vertising is pretty important adver- 1
Using. If done right it gives an irn- i
petus of incalculable benefit to sum- i
mer advertising. If the May ad- 1
vertistng lacks the qualities that go to (
make up good advertising then the 1
whole summer advertising suffers.|(

Therefore begin tbe summer ad- a
vertising with good May advertising. I
It gives a grand climax to spring advertising.

Editor western uaa .peuow :
I had uot intended to write you
again until I reached the holy city but
new objects and interests follow so
closely upon one another in this Eastern
country that I will try and tell
you something of the intolerant
Turk. Intellectually he is narrow,
selfish and a coward. He may be
said to be set in his way, for if he is
unce a Mohammedan he may travel,
become educated, but no matter where
be goes he is a Mohammedan still.
I arrived at Constantinople, the
capital of the Ottoman Empire, on
Friday, February 27, and departed
Sunday evening, March lv. This i? a
sity of about one million people, built
in three parte, two in Europe and one
in Asia. The sea of Marmora, the
Golden Horn and the Bosphoros
[which connects the Black Sea with
the sea of Marmora) divides Asia
rrom Europe. The Golden Horn is
formed by the junction Of two large

waters are excellent harbors and gives
be city a great water frontage and
nakes it" an excellent shipping center.
It has a better natural harbor
:ban New York City but the docks
ire very crude, ancient affairs. The
own has narrow, crooked, dirty
itreets and a queer appearance. Mr.
Dicberson the American consul, met
hebhipand showed us every atteu,ion
He is a fine gentleman and

me entire day carriage driving about

over the city. The Mobammelans
are very devoted in their worthip.

Farther in an kneel again, and so on.
Friday is the; Mohammedan's day of
worship and Christian dogs are not
illowed to enter their worship on Frijay.
There were four or five hunJred
present all chanting a weird
jong. With their faces turned towards
Mecca, they would follow the
motions of the priest. He would bend
partially forward cbant some words,
straighten up and again bend farther
forward, and the third time bend and
kiss the carpet.
The great building was dimly lightad
with hundreds of incense lamps.
This mosque was built by Emperor
Justin in 506 as a Christian church;
afterward taken by Mohammed the
2nd and the crosses and figures of
Christ that crowned every arch were
chiseled away, as the Mohammedans
will not tolerate the cross. The dome
of this mosque is 105 feet in diameter
tnd 184 feet high, with 40 arcbed windows
in the face. The walls and ceilings
are beautifully frescoed and laid
in gold leaf. It is a grand building,
the finest of its time, it cost $5,000,000.
There are many of these mosques
with great domes over the city.

public for fear of losing his bead. He
is 62 years old, has 27 wives and a
large harem besides. The Turks dare
not speak his name only in a whisper
and then not within one-half mile of
his palace. He deposed his brother
some years ago because he was 'too
friendly with Christians and now has
bim shut up in his harem on the Asia
side of the city.
Soldiers are everywhere and dogs
by the thousand. The interpreter of
the American Consul told me that
there were about one dog to every
five inhabitants and that not one in a
hundred had an owner. They are a
mangy, measley, flea-bitten lot of
yellow curs some with an ear, some
with an eye gone, many minus a tail.
